Why tell the story behind the photograph?

Photos are amazing things when you think about them. They capture the briefest of moments and hold it still for an eternity. And yet, in our world of social media with thousands upon thousands of photos being uploaded every day, we can sometimes forget why we take photographs in the first place.

They allow us to share and communicate, and perhaps most importantly of all, they provide us with the opportunity to show what’s important to each of us.
